To Post:

Each week features a different theme, as well as a letter of the alphabet for coming up with new masking ideas. 


Please include the brand and name of the mask you are trying out, as well as a photo if possible. Any other details are greatly appreciated, including scent, if it's an exfoliating mask (include acid info if known), your overall experience, and whether or not you would repurchase. Don't forget to include a grade (thanks to @ShortErica for the idea) to help others along the way.


Most importantly, have fun and merry masking!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Not a band name or maybe Your Ex's? 🤔 but it is a subject that gets sung about a lot!

 This was a gift from the extraordinary @eshoe

 

Fit? Almost perfect just a lil bit of roz

 

Smell?it did have a strong scent but between my hair -fresh out of the shower, stuffy nose, & trader joes gingerbread body scrub. I really couldn't tell exactly what it was. Maybe typical sheet mask scent? But it was pleasant enough

 

Consistency?gel like, before it soaked in, left a shiny, tacky residue. It had be a bit worried. But you do have a lot to go around

 

Ease of use?no issues

 

Would I  purchase/try again? After it soaked in, was left without tack. Not sure of the exfoliating powers but did like this mask. It delivered good hydration & my skin was soft in the morning. Thank you @eshoe for sharing this with me!😊😊😊😊😊

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Love the band name @sonnydee! Love Leaders masks too! You're making me want to break open my TJ gingerbread body scrub now!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Since it was 12 days & I bought it perfectly timed with minis bday. I used the calendar with her to count down til her birthday (today) it was fun & she enjoyed smelling all the goodness with me. @itsfi 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Awww, fun @sonnydee! Happy birthday to mini! 🎂

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Love how you incorporate the name with the theme @sonnydee 😆

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Ha yes @sonnydee seems like most music is about that, doesn’t it 😆 Now the gingerbread scrub sounds delicious! I need to get to my Trader Joe’s sometime before the year ends. I miss my fill of peppermint Joe—Joe’s.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

It was a mini in the advent calendar. My TJ did not have a good selection of holiday goodies or at least i didn't see that much. I did get some peppermint hand wash. @eshoe but that was pretty much it.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Bahahaha, I love how you fit it into the theme @sonnydee !

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Thanks @missjeanie

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Tried the Sephora Coconut Sheet Mask. No!! It was dingy and dirty looking, brownish. The smell was not pleasant. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Danielle103, sorry to hear this one really didn’t work out for you. 😔 A coconut mask seems like one of those that would be refreshing and hydrating. It’s too bad that was so far from your results. Too Cool For School Coconut Ceramide Mask is my favorite coconut mask; I wish Sephora still carried it. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Do they still make that TCFS mask and sell it elsewhere?  I grabbed a couple when I spotted some at Ulta last year, but I hadn't seen any since.  I've quite liked all of the TCFS products I've tried... I should try to find  a distributor who ships up here.... hmmmm... might have just given me an idea that I really didn't need (lol) for an afternoon googling. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie, I really hope they haven't discontinued the ceramide sheet mask; it's such a great mask! It seems to be OOS at my usual go-to's for it - yesstyle, Bloomingdale's, revolve, ulta, etc. Hmmm... 😉 I shall tell myself it is just being repackaged for now. I'm also making a mental note to start thinking about what coconut mask would be either a good dupe for it until it comes back online or which will take its place. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I did a bit of a quick look yesterday to see if I could find anymore that shipped to Canada and didn't notice any available anywhere @itsfi .  I hope that they come back too.  I try to be sparse with the coconut on my skin... but these ones are soooo nice. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Danielle103 always a bummer when the scent isn't quite what you were hoping for. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Danielle103  Aww, well that's disappointing! I stopped buying Sephora masks because of the strong/bad fragrance. Sorry to hear this one was a bummer!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Danielle103  Awww, that's too bad about the smell. I would have hoped it had a nice coconut scent. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Danielle103 I wasn't too fond of the scent either

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

A couple catch up posts from this week.... guys... I’m falling off my two a days.  I need to really start upping my masking game in December lol.

The Neogen was a much needed mask this week. I woke up with flaky skin (I’m on a tretinoin journey and my impatience shows up in flakes). I put the mask on and right away my face felt soothed. The milky serum wasn’t oily but it did feel silky on my hand while applying. I didn’t note the scent which to me means that it wasn’t amazing, nor was it offensive. I had the mask on for about 30 minutes when I just had to take it off to eat. Food first right? Well I took the mask off carefully and did some snacking I folded the mask and used it as a sort of wipe around my chin area (the worst of the flakes were here). I usually toss masks right away but it felt so nice to keep massaging this on my skin and there was still plenty of serum left on the mask. Afterwards my skin did feel super tacky. This is probably the most tack I’ve ever noticed on a mask, but I topped off with a moisturizer and it was gone. I’m super happy to have more of these because I know myself... I’m going to go hard again with prescription and need them. 

The Victoria secret coco calm mask was an amazing fit. I frankly didn’t have super high hopes for a mask from a lingerie company, but the fit was so perfect. The serum on the mask was okay, no coconut scent like I’d hoped, which I know... I should appreciate no fragrance, but I enjoy tropical beach scents. I was a bit nervous since coconut oil had made me break out in the past but I’m starting to think I might be okay with a wee bit of coconut extract. Not a theory I want to delve heavily into, there are enough other great ingredients for moisture that I don’t need to worry about this one not being for me.  Would I re purchase? No, it wasn’t a knock out, and I’ll avoid coconut if I notice it, so it’s not for me, but I certainly wasn’t mad at the mask and will try more from the brand if I find myself in a store and they’re there.

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

That Neogen milk cream mask checks off so many boxes @missjeanie! 🥰🥰🥰

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I feel like I’m going to enjoy them all winter @itsfi !
